A total of 1,871 passengers flew on the Tartu-Helsinki route in January, 12.1%t less than in January 2017, reported LETA/BNS.

The number of weekly flights was cut to six in spring 2018, and in January 2019 flights numbered 52, spokespeople for the airport told.

The average number of passengers per departure meanwhile grew by one from 35 in January 2018 to 36 in January this year. 

During 2018, 25,530 passengers used the Tartu-Helsinki service operated by Finnair, slightly over 10% less than in 2017.
